These 21 young men have given their all to the purple, some for just two years, others for five. They will take the field at Bill Snyder Family Stadium for the final time today before an emotional contest against their most-hated rivals from That School Down the River. They're going to be missed.

And then there's going to be a football game, which with all honesty may be anticlimactic. Tyler Lockett needs two touchdowns and four receptions to tie his father's two remaining career records. It's probably a good bet he'll get at least one of them by the end of the afternoon. Also looking for a big game will be Curry Sexton, who's currently on pace for a 1000-yard season -- and if he gets there, it would be the first time in K-State history that two receivers broke that barrier in the same season.

Finally, a win today will ensure the 'Cats hold serve in their chase for a New Year's bowl. That's sort of important. Join us as the Wildcats go for their sixth straight win over the Jayhawks.
